Hi! Esa, thanks for looking into these problems.

We install the locales-all package which contains all locales already pre-built, and `Provides: locales`. > No, that is not the problem.

We already had an issue where locales-all was not providing everything that locales would provide. See #788352. I guess the fact that locales-all doesn't ship localedef can be considered as a bug. But the whole point of locales-all is that you don't need to build anything. In the present case, the fact that apertium locale packages ships compiled locale definition files feels like a hack. I wonder if there's a better solution. I also wonder if compiled locale definitions works accross different versions of the glibc or if there's potential upgrade issues hiding here. (I must admit that I am also puzzled at the idea that there's a source package *per locale*, that must be a hell of a burden to update and keep in sync.) So, probably there's a minor bug to fill against locales-all about localedef. A quick work-around for apertium locale packages would be to check if the system already has a compiled locale definition and copy it instead of always using localedef. But I think it would be worthwhile to revisit how apertium locale packages are built and work. -- Lunar .''`. lu...@debian.org : :Ⓐ : # apt-get install anarchism `. `'` `-
